Church and Tower Clocks from Gillett & Johnston
These are preferably arranged above the dials, with a weatherproof floor to the belfry.
The hours are struck on a single bell and the quarters are chimed on two (Ting Tang), four (Westminster Quarter), eight or ten extra bells.
These should be in proportion both to the height and width of the tower. A rule of thumb is the dial should be one tenth of the height of the tower. There are many different types of dials including copper, GRP, Skeleton and illuminated. See Dial / Hand section for illustrations.
Designed to customers’ specification, fabricated in heavy gauge copper, ribbed and stiffened to withstand high wind pressures and carefully counterbalanced.
These can be mechanical. mains driven or quartz controlled with radio signal. See Equipment section for further information.
